My sister Robyn and I were so very touched by the incredible service we received from J h Kenyon/J Hemp Funeral Directors when our Mum passed away end of July this year. The Funeral Service Arranger Valerie Orpen and Funeral Director Philip Smyth made us feel so very welcome and at ease and we felt a genuine connection with them instantly as they knew just the right approach and are so obviously naturally wonderful people it made us feel that Mum was in the best hands. Very informative, very thorough and very well organised every step of the way; just what you need when dealing with such a monumental loss with so much to sort. Even a follow up to touch base after. To Valerie and Philip this is not just their profession; they are 100% invested in helping and gently guiding you to process, grieve, even laugh and celebrate the wonderful life and memory of someone you treasure. Also the little individual touches here and there made it all the more special. We are forever grateful, thank you, x
